Christmas Movies

Whether it is my own struggles with truly giving my worries to the Lord, or just general weariness, I still do not feel like getting very deep or theological on here. So instead,let's discuss something very shallow: holiday movies. What are the best Christmas movies???? While the classics are great, modern cinema has given a few gems too......here are 5 faves

5-It's a Wonderful Life-

Call it cliche, or predictable, but I have loved this since I was a kid. There are so many lessons in this...and one life truly can make a difference!

4-Scrooged-

A spoof on the Dickens classic, Murray rules at the protagonist you love to hate!

3-A Christmas Story-

Yes...another predictable one, but I cannot help it, this warms my heart and makes me laugh!

2- Elf-

Modern classic!!!!!!!!!! I love Buddy the Elf. Behindthe goofy laughs, there is actually a sweet story.

1-Christmas Vacation-

One of the funniest movies ever! I can almost quote the whole thing. No Pannell Christmas is complete without at least 1 viewing.

Honorable mention:
Polar Express
Muppet Christmas Carol
Die Hard

Tell me what you think!

You about have all our favorites.

Tim Allen's The Santa Clause is always watchable when it shows up on TV.

For the melancholy boomers:A Charlie Brown Christmas

Better than watching the Poison Ivy Bowl: Arnold's Jingle all the Way.

Ernest Saves Christmas.
